Graduate Employability: 94%

Physiotherapists treat illnesses, injuries and disease via physical methods such as massage, heat treatment, and exercise. This can be alongside, or instead of drug treatment, so expect to receive a well-rounded education as part of a Physiotherapy degree.

Physiotherapists usually work within the NHS or in the private sector, either within hospitals or sometimes for private companies such as professional sports teams.
